Doge’s Palace, Gallerie dell’Accademia Museum, and Torcello Island: Toto Bergamo Rossi’s Venice

By Whitewaller

May 12, 2017

The 57th edition of the Venice Biennale, VIVA ARTE VIVA, is off to a powerful start. At the fair, you’ll find copies of Whitewaller Venice—out now to help guide you through the busy art fair and the bustling Italian city. Below, we’re sharing tips on where to go for dinner, drinks, and art inspiration from the director of Venetian Heritage, Toto Bergamo Rossi.

WHERE TO SEE ART
For Venetian Heritage this year there is a big anticipation for our contemporary art video by Douglas Gordon at the Doge’s Palace and a small exhibition at the Accademia of two old master pieces that we restored. The Philip Guston show on at the Gallerie dell’Accademia Museum is another one I am very excited about.

WHAT THE BIENNALE MEANS FOR VENICE
Well, it’s another kind of level of tourist—they behave better than the normal public, they come to see contemporary art, but they also come into old churches, etc. It’s a nice mix of people. And I think that’s the future of Venice; it’s all about culture.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
To detox in Venice you just go to the Lido and have a walk on the beach! Or you can take a tour on the lagoon, just around Torcello Island. I personally will escape to my place on a little island called Lopud, near Dubrovnik, where I like to rest when I am tired.
